Ambrosia Maple
« on: March 27, 2006, 08:34:42 PM »
   I sawed a large maple today and it was ambrosia.I cut it 4/4 and8/4 and I have a ten footer left to cut tomorrow.What deminsions do turners prefer?It is 26 inches diameter.It sure is wild lookin.Looks like brown snakes crawing through it.And it has random birdseye.

I turn and the sizes that a lot of turners would agree with would be 8X8, 10X10 and 12X12 with the blanks being 2 and 3 inches thick and maybe 4 inches thick. Turning blanks that I have bought have been sealed on all edges with just a 2-3 inch circle in the center unsealed.  Hope this helps.
